If you’ve had a stressful day, sometimes it’s easiest to go home, put on a face mask, have a glass of wine, and then go right to bed. But what if you’re having trouble falling asleep and that sketchy sleepy tea you bought on a whim at a farmers market a few weeks ago just isn’t cutting it? (It said it was organic, OK?!)
Well, that’s where the following TV shows come in. From light comedies to put you in a good mood to the soothing visuals of Chip and Joanna Gaines covering every home in Texas in shiplap, these series will have you snoozin’ in no time.
The Shocking Reason Why Women Pay More Than Men For Everything From Shampoo to Jeans
Forget the year of the woman – this may very well be the decade of the woman. Female empowerment has risen to an all-time high, with women taking to the streets to protest gender inequality and demand fair treatment through equal pay, reproductive rights, and social justice.
But there’s still one big way that women are treated unequally that remains largely unknown: the Pink Tax. This sneaky charge applies to all kinds of products marketed to women, from children’s bike helmets to skincare products to blue jeans. Just how much are we talking? A 1994 study conducted by the State of California found that women pay an additional $1,351 every year, even when they buy the same goods and services as their male counterparts. Since then, a growing number of studies have confirmed just how real – and painful – the Pink Tax is. By the time the average woman turns 30, she will have already spent $40,530 more than a man on similar products. Now that’s unfair.
Ready to find out just how much the Pink Tax is costing you? Click through each category below to discover the price difference between the gendered version of each of these seven common products. One thing’s for sure: it will change the way you see shopping forever.
Chris Hemsworth Denies Knowing What Happens in Avengers: Endgame but Does Say “I’d Be Happy to Do More”
Most of us would probably have trouble remembering what happened at work a year ago, right? But when you’re Chris Hemsworth, “what happened at work a year ago” is the culmination of 11 years of Marvel movies, plot twists, and story arcs, so we have a little trouble believing him when he says he doesn’t know what happens in Avengers: Endgame. Hemsworth paid a visit to The Ellen Degeneres show this week to discuss the movie, and of course she quizzed him on the fate of Thor and the rest of the Avengers.
But he was having none of it, telling her that he’s coming to the movie as a fan, just like the rest of us. “I have a rough idea of what happens, but I have not seen the film, and I do not know, really, how it ends,” he said.
Hemsworth did share one piece of information that might get you excited, though. When asked if – assuming Thor survives – he’d ever revisit the character, he was hopeful, saying “Who knows what’s in store. Me personally, it’s the best fun I’ve ever had, and I’d be happy to do more if they wanted me. More than happy.
” Surely given the huge success of the retro-tastic Thor Ragnarok, Marvel would jump at the chance to revisit our favorite Asgardian (OK, second favorite) for another adventure? Hopefully, we don’t have too long to find out, because Thor’s fate will be revealed when Avengers: Endgame is released on April 26.
